    What made you choose a healthcare career?
    I want to make patients feel better about their smile.

    What types of care do you provide, and what sets your care apart?
    I provide restorative care (fillings, crowns ), extractions, dentures as well as emergency dental care. In addition, I enjoy treating children and participating in our outreach school programs in the community (Seal a Smile).

    What’s your patient care philosophy?
    I like building up great relationships with my patients as I understand the importance of treating the entire person, not just their teeth. My goal is to tailor every treatment plan to fit each patient’s individual needs.

    What can patients look forward to when they visit you?
    I believe coming to the dentist can be fun, comfortable, and quick. Gone are the days of avoiding the dentist. Our office strives to make your visit as quick, painless, and enjoyable as possible.
